Bourgeois guitars made in Lewiston, Maine are pure American acoustic guitars, built with unparalleled attention to detail. From the selection of woods to the hardware, each guitar is unique, and two guitars of the same model receive highly personalized attention that gives them a unique quality. The small team of craftsmen provides a particular life to these instruments, making compatible assortments to determine the tone of each guitar according to its size and shape. They are hand-carved, and each one benefits from the involvement of Dana Bourgeois himself at many stages of production, who carries out quality control of each piece.
The charm of this Bourgeois Slope D style "35" with an Aged Tone Adirondack spruce top and Sunburst finish is incredible. The sound it delivers is very much in line with the model it is inspired by, namely the Gibson J-35, which was built with a short scale and an advanced bracing to enhance the projection on stage, without losing warmth. The softness and warmth are there, and since it's Bourgeois, the quality is impressive from the moment you pick it up.
The brand's specific torreified Adirondack bracing increases the vibration of the top in a characteristic way that magnifies the frequencies and harmonics. The Madagascar rosewood fingerboard on the neck and bridge delicately darkens the timbre. It gives it incredible softness, while the carefully selected Honduran mahogany back and sides round off the corners. This guitar is a pure marvel.
The playing comfort is... outstanding. Nothing is left to chance at Bourgeois, and the balance of frequencies, with a slight accent on the bass, is absolutely intoxicating. The notes glide along with the fingers, the chords almost self-level, so well adjusted and easy to play. A professional guitar, for pros of course, but also for all amateurs who want to buy their last guitar.
